Nothing like theplas to carry along on a journey. Not only are they very tasty with the superb flavour and aroma of methi, they are also satiating and convenient.

To make these theplas we have used a whole wheat flour dough with a large assortment of taste-giving ingredients ranging from green chilli paste and spice powders to sesame seeds. However, we have not used curds, in order to increase the shelf life.

You also need to make sure you add lots of oil while cooking; otherwise they will become dry and get spoilt soon. When made as per the instructions, the Methi Theplas will stay fresh in the fridge for almost 15 days.

When you anticipate a busy fortnight, you can make a large batch and keep them in stock. Just take them out when you want a nice meal, warm them slightly on a tava and enjoy with curds and pickles .

You can also try other variants of theplas like Zucchini Thepla , Mooli Thepla or Doodhi Theplas .

   Hi Krishna, Yes, you can. The taste would obviously differ. Theplas are generally cooked in oil and not ghee.

   We have not tried making them using kasuri methi or stored them for 3 months. If you add fresh leaves, they will stay fresh for up to 15 days.
